William Fichtner Will Play Lone Ranger Villain

Deadline reports that character actor William Fichtner has replaced Dwight Yoakum (Crank 1-2) as the villain in Gore Verbinski's (Pirates 1-3) The Lone Ranger. Fichtner is best known for memorable roles in films like Armageddon, The Dark Knight, Heat, Black Hawk Down and Drive Angry. He also has a part in Neill Blomkamp's upcoming science fiction epic Elysium. I'm glad to see William featured in another high profile project. The rest of the cast includes Armie Hammer (Social Network), Johnny Depp, Ruth Wilson (Luther), James Badge Dale (The Pacific, The Departed), Tom Wilkinson, Helena Bonham Carter and Barry Pepper (Saving Private Ryan).
